Remutaka Hill closed Sunday night, 14 August, for planned roadworks

|

Road users in Wellington and Wairarapa should consider alternative routes and be prepared for delays with State Highway 2 over the Remutaka Hill to be closed this Sunday night, 14 August.

The overnight closure, from 9 pm to 4 am, is part of a series of planned closures between August 2022 and July 2023. This is to allow essential maintenance and slip prevention work to be carried out.

These closures significantly reduce the number of daytime disruptions for road users. Road crews can also complete a large amount of work safely over a small number of closures because multiple crews can work across the hill at the same time without disrupting traffic.

Waka Kotahi understands the closure may inconvenience some road users. We want to thank them for their patience and understanding as we carry out this essential work.

Regular users of this route are encouraged to stay up to date on upcoming closures. While these dates are fixed, bad weather may cause work to be cancelled. A full list of planned closures is in the table below:
